. dan springer has been on top of this. what's the latest? >> you talk about turbulence. the grounding is a major blow to boeing and the airlines that have sunk billions of dollars into this plane of the future. let's face it, this is boeing's showcase plane. airlines are scrambling to bring in jets to replace the 787. that has led to flight delays and cancellations. many passengers stranded, their plans in limbo, but for the most part saying better safe than sorry. >> i rather flight tomorrow or fly tight by different airplane line that continue the risk anything happen. >> the faa's directive followed the emergency landing 0 of 00787 plane in japan. a lithium ion battery overheated and hot chemicals sprayed out of it. eight days earlier, a battery in a different part of the plane overheated, cracked open and caught fire. so the faa has told boeing they have to prove the battery is safe before the dreamliners could fly again. it could take days, weeks, perhaps moss. the battery manufacturer said is too take months to figure out the problem. we know the electrical system is advanced an
matter when americans are taken hostage along with others. >> cnn's dan rivers is in london. dan, there are so many different stories going around that the compound was attacked by the algerian military, that some of the hostages escaped, including one american. what are you hearing? >> well, i'm afraid it is a very confusing picture. the latest line we have from the british foreign office here in london confirming that the algerians have told them that there is an ongoing operation at this gas field suggesting that perhaps some sort of effort to go in. we know from the ministry of information in algeria they surrounded the terrorists with the hostages at the gas field, the troops were there. this sounds like they have gone in. there were widespread reports that helicopters were being used to attack the terrorist positions. now, the algerian foreign minister is clear on that saying the use of helicopters is wrong, it's a fantasy was their quote on that. in terms of the number of people that are being held hostage, we don't really have a clear idea, i'm afraid. the initial reports
it a terrorist attack as well. for more, let's go to dan rivers in london. what are the latest reports there on the hostage situation? >> effectively, according to the minister of information in algeria, this is a standoff. the algerian security forces surrounded this gas plant in the far east of algeria. the islamists are holed up inside, holding a number of western hostages. we don't know the exact numbers. there's been a press conference this morning from the norwegian stat oil company. it is saying that it had 17 employees there, 5 escaped. and therefore 12 remain unaccounted for. not clear if all are being held hostage or if some escaped into the desert. it's a confused situation. the state department confirmed there are americans among those being held. we understand as well possibly british, japanese, french as well as those norwegians. a number of countries being embroiled in this hostage crisis which looks like it may have been precipitated by algeria's decision to allow french planes to fly of the country as part of its ongoing military campaign in mali to the south. >> i kno

for now. dan springer live in seattle where teams assem being the 787. the fa amp wants proof that batteries are safe before they can fly again is that what we can report? >> that is right, bill. the f.a.a. issued what they call an emergency air worthiness directive to potential fire risk in the 787 and grounding the u.s. airliner fleet grounded six planes all owned by united airline. this is a big change for the f.a.a. just last friday officials said the 787s were completely safe. even as they announced a comprehensive review of the plane's electrical system. even though analysts tell me they don't think the issue in japan today was all that serious in terms of the threat to the aircraft coming down. the feds have seen enough to jump in. all the recent problems the way the plane is powered. the lithium ion batteries are used to provide backup electricity. this directive will mean that united will be scrambling to move flights around -- planes around and flights getting cancelled. >> bill: how big of a problem is this for boeing. >> they may be getting close to a tipping point

'malley. he's going to roll out sweeping gun control proposals of the connecticut governor dan malloy. how is this going to play into the 2016 race, do you think, chip? >> it will play into it. because right now the governors can actually do something with this campaign legislation. as they get in front of the senate and the most interesting one right now is secretary of state hillary clinton who doesn't have to make a comment, she can kind of speak through president clinton, and she can see how the story develops before she weighs in. >> 2016 is still a long way off. do you see what's happening now as kind of a sea change, that candidates won't be able to avoid the conversation and may in fact be out in front of the conversation to get out in front of it. >> i think the republicans will make it an issue because republican voters care deeply about their second amendment rites. i think the democrats will make it an issue because now there's a growing awareness that gun violence is something we have to take action about. i see both sides taking an interest in it. it's going to grow as an iss
in this plane. dan springer is live in seattle. what is the immediate impact of all this, dan? >> reporter: martha, officially it is a crisis for boeing. canceled flights, upset passengers all across the world. within hours of the faa directive to ground all 787s, other countries followed suit. airlines are scrambling to get other aircraft to fill in for the dreamliners. in most case that is not possible. in san jose, two flights to tokyo have been canceled. two are in jeopardy. this nonstop route was opened friday to a lot of fanfare. the faa is grounding the 787 because of quote, a potential battery fire risk. it was triggered by an emergency landing of a 787 in japan due to apparent overheatings of a battery, second time in eight years. business leaders who worked for years getting new flights to asia. they don't fault the airlines. they're upset with boeing. >> this is a company that put passengers ahead of profits and made a wise decision to make sure that boeing works out these kinks before they put another plane up in the air. >> reporter: and 49 dreamliners were in service. united
